The U.S. Department of Energy Office of Indian Energy is hosting a free webinar on Energy’s Role in Resilience Planning tomorrow, May 26, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mountain Time (MT).
A reliable supply of electricity (and other heating and transportation fuels) is essential for community safety and prosperity. Weather-related blackouts and brownouts in Texas and California over the last year have demonstrated the importance of building greater resilience into our electricity systems. This webinar will discuss potential weaknesses in our electric grid and distribution lines, and ways tribes can address those weaknesses through energy projects that help strengthen or support the grid.
- Eliza Hotchkiss, Technical Group Lead, Resilient Systems Design and Engineering (NREL)
- Jana Ganion, Sustainability and Government Affairs Director, Blue Lake Rancheria
- Stefanie Krantz, Climate Change Coordinator, Nez Perce Tribe Water Resources Division.
